Ah, the first day of fall is here. Cooler temperatures, leaves changing color, and the long sleeves being brought out of the closet to keep people warm. We don’t know what any of that means here in Florida!
While people are seeing and feeling the cooler temperatures around the country, nothing changes in Florida this early. It’s still in the high 80s and low 90s, still rains every day, and still so humid you start sweating the moment you walk out the door. There are no jackets, but shorts and sandals instead. There is no need for a heater, just the AC on full blast!
Florida doesn’t get the seasonal changes like the rest of the country gets. It does get cold in November and December, but the leaves really don’t change color and even during December, it can still be hot outside. I remember a few years ago I was wearing shorts and a t-shirt on Christmas. How many people up north can do that? I’ll be heading to Nashville in 3 weeks (more on that later) so hopefully then I get to see a little bit of the changing colors of the leaves and possibly feel some cold temperatures.
